Many employers are keen to create an LGBT-inclusive workplace and will have taken initial steps towards this, such as adopting statements and policies. However, good intentions alone are not enough to embed an inclusive culture and employers often struggle to implement the practical actions required to achieve inclusivity.
In XpertHR’s 60-minute webinar, Sanjay Sood-Smith, executive director at Stonewall shares his experience and top tips on:
- the benefits of creating an LGBT-inclusive workplace;
- establishing an environment for people to be comfortable in themselves;
- the role played by networks, allies and role models in supporting inclusivity; and
- obtaining buy-in from senior leaders to influence behaviour throughout the organisation.
The webinar includes a Q&A session. Available on demand
